Looking for ways to make the daily heparin injections easier on my patients. Some are pretty bruised and one cried the other day. I do everything the way I should but it hurts them so much; I don't think its my technique as much as the medication itself, and the fact that they are getting it TID.
Does anyone have suggestions? What about the less painful sites? Where I recently started working, the side of the thigh seems to be the popular spot. Is there anywhere else less painful?
Thanks in advance!
